Due to high demand, we are offering another session of "Planning for Instruction Using NYSESLAT Data" at Sullivan County BOCES on Tuesday, February 27th, 2018. Participants will analyze NYSESLAT modality data to purposefully target instruction across NYSESLAT proficiency levels. This workshop is intended for all teachers who work with ELLs and who utilize NYSESLAT data. Register in MLP here.

Furthermore, you may be interested in the recently released NYSED Guidance Document for Determining ELL/MLL Status of Supports for Students with Disabilities.
